    Myself and another guy are starting up our own fert company, this is our initial setup plan.... F150, enclosed 10x12 trailer, permagreen spreader sprayer, 2 backpacks and a 100 gallon split tank spray rig, plus a push spreader. Any thoughts, advice or criticism will be appreciated in this thread.
    Thanks

    make sure your trailer has brakes.... never messed with any sprays, but I've hauled plenty of 100+ gal tanks.... nothing like a half full tank sloshing around behind you trying to push you around.
